The Coming Revolution in (Higher) Education: Process, Time, and Singularity
The ideas of process philosophy in general, and Alfred North Whitehead in particular, will soon come into greater use and wider familiarity. This emergence of his ideas into wider use will be a great aid to education and to the reforming of our institutions and practices around the very different educational (and scientific) requirements of the sort of world that sits just beyond the horizon of our present vision. There will be discontinuities in the world to come (huge ones), but there will also be continuities. Whitehead’s ideas about time and possibility, and their practical applications, place us in a position to do better than guess and conjecture about what is coming.
